In multiple myeloma, c-MYC is activated and contributes to the malignant phenotype. Targeting c-MYC by short hairpin RNA induced cell death in myeloma cell lines however; cell lines are generated from samples taken in advanced stages of the disease and may not reflect patient cells adequately. In this study we used the selective small molecule inhibitor of MYC-MAX heterodimerization, 10058-F4, on myeloma cell lines as well as primary myeloma cells, and show that inhibition of c-MYC activity efficiently induces myeloma cell death. Moreover, in cocultures of cell lines with bone marrow stromal cells from myeloma patients, the inhibitor still induces apoptosis. Our results provide further evidence that myeloma cells are addicted to c-MYC activity and that c-MYC is a promising therapeutic target in multiple myeloma.
